Warner Bros. used The LEGO Movie Blu-ray release as a way to promote their other upcoming LEGO film property Ninjago. The studio released a funny promo teaser that kind of gives us our first look at Ninjago.
The spot is called “Enter the Ninjago,” and it introduces the idea of a Ninjago movie in a very meta way. They basically incorporate a The Green Ninja a.k.a. Lloyd Garmadon from Ninjago into certain climatic scenes of The LEGO Movie. Those scenes are reimagined to show the ninja really saving the day rather than Emmett.
It's a clever way to get fans excited for what is to come. The movie is being written by Charlie Bean (Tron: Uprising). Original LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be producing.
The Ninjago movie is set in a mystical land where ninja, samurai, and sensei band together to battle dragons and snake men. The heroes will be fighting the evil and power-hungry Lord Garmadon. It opens in theaters on September 23rd, 2016.
